HASH(0xa5b86a38) out of 5 stars Dictations are more suited to higher grades Dec 1 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My children have used the Writing With Ease workbooks from the beginning, but the Level 4 workbook includes dictations that are sometimes 6 lines long. We always have to split the dictations into sections, and often neither me nor my husband can remember them, so it is hard to expect my 9 year old to. I would recommend Levels 1-3, but I would only recommend Level 4 to children who can easily remember text...otherwise, it's extremely time consuming and frustrating.

HASH(0xa8c56288) out of 5 stars Great curriculum Nov. 24 2010
By L. Hanson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love this curriculum. My son has completed Levels 1 through 3 and is now working on Level 4. He is completely writing his own narration summaries. This series starts out with your child narrating his summaries for you to write down (Level 1) and then gradually moves the child to writing on his own. At the beginning of Level 4, your child is expected to write the first one or two sentences of his narration on his own, but it also allows a lot of flexibility depending on your child's skill level. Level 4 stretches the child's ability to remember long dictations, and the dictations are more complicated than in the previous levels. Dictations often include dialogue. The reading passages are interesting and come from wonderful books. My son often looks for the books introduced in the passages to read on his own. The passages come from a mix of fiction and nonfiction works. The lessons are short and focused. This level was more expensive than those I have purchased in the past -- maybe because it was just recently published? At any rate, it is well worth it as it saves me a lot of time.

HASH(0xa5d8ba38) out of 5 stars Wonderful Writing Curriculum Dec 13 2011
By Julby - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This writing curriculum is wonderful. It is very complete, and my daughter enjoys it. Each week you read a section from a story, and your child writes, in their own words, what the story was about. There are also dictation exercises to be done during the week. I love the stories they give you to read in this book. It has sparked my daughter's interest in the books they read from. Our lessons usually only take about 15 minutes per day, so it's very doable. I also highly recommend using this with their grammar curriculum, "First Language Lessons." These two books compliment each other very well.

HASH(0xa6551204) out of 5 stars Writing With Ease Workbook Level 4 Feb. 7 2013
By Jennifer Schwarz - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I originally ordered the teacher manual because the ideas for the lessons were all included. I soon found out that I didn't care to be looking for all the right passages for my children to use. This workbook has made it so much simpler. Now we are able to concentrate on learning the skills of narration and dictation which my older two had very little experience with in traditional school. After completing just a few weeks of the lessons in this workbook (they actually write in a separate notebook) I feel they have transitioned well from the "read a passage-take a test " style of learning they practiced for their first five & six years of schooling. I am confident they will learn well next year as we switch to "living books" for many of our subjects. I will save this for my younger two who began with level 1 this year.

HASH(0xa5b7c978) out of 5 stars Big fans of Writing with Ease, but... Feb. 4 2015
By Cristy - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Level 4 is intended to be a sort of remedial level, if a child isn't ready to move on to Writing with Skill. My son isn't ready and we will continue to reinforce with WWE level 4. I can see how this method is really building strong language skills and it works best for my son, who really struggles with writing (though he excels in reading).
Minus two stars for the excessively long and difficult dictation exercises. I have difficulty remembering word for word the three or four complex sentences that are to be read aloud three times and remembered. We easily make adjustments to fit our situation, as we are very familiar with this program. I don't know that I would start using this book with a 9-10 year old, unaccustomed to this method of learning language arts.
